Will Smith blames Twitter for Bieber’s problems, Bieber thanks him on Twitter

After Will Smith cites Twitter as the cause of many of Justin Bieber’s problems, what does Bieber do? Takes to Twitter to thank him!

Will gave an interview to Capital FM in London [listen here] where he said he did just as much stupid stuff as Justin when he was 19 but luckily there was no Twitter or smart phones to capture every moment so he could get away with it in private.

Justin then decided to thank Will by posting a link to Capital FM on Twitter, which kind of goes against what Will was saying …

‘Will Smith is the man! @officialjaden u r cool too 🙂

I’m sure he has his number and could send him a quick text to say thanks but obviously everything has to be done publicly these days.

Speaking of … Justin has decided to keep us all guessing about his relationship with Selena Gomez by posting a picture of them hugging on his Instagram account with the caption

‘You’ve been makin music for too long babe come cuddle’ – her.”

At first I thought this meant they were back together but Beliebers, who know everything there is to know about their idol, have pointed out he’s missing his new tiger tattoo from his left arm so who knows.

He might claim to hate all the attention but it’s pretty obvious Justin loves it.

Celebrity regrets

We’ve all said stuff in the heat of the moment that we’ve subsequently regretted but for celebrities it’s a million times worse. The latest is Justin Bieber’s dig at Lindsay Lohan’s money issues as he defended himself following a couple of weeks of bad press.

He posted a statement on Instagram which he finished with “To those comparing me to Lindsay Lohan look at her 2012 tax statements :)”, before quickly deleting it and reposting without any reference to Lohan.

Check out the original and edited posts below.

Personally I think if you have the conviction to write something down [and from the various grammar and spelling errors, it’s most likely he did it himself] and post it on the internet, then you should have the balls to stand by your sentiments!

However, what I find most interesting about Justin’s backtracking is that he didn’t even apologise to Lindsay, just acknowledged mentioning her took the attention off the point he was trying to make, which is basically, that he is not going off the rails, oh and that he is super talented [but clearly not modest].

He told TMZ: “My post was only up for a few minutes but I realized right away that what I said at the end was wrong and distracted from what I was trying to say.

“I immediately deleted it and rewrote it so it would show what I was really feeling and those words are up now.”

It’s a sign of how far Lindsay has fallen that she has become the butt of jokes and no one is worried about offending her. Plenty of other celebrities have had tax troubles in recent times including fellow former child star Britney Spears, but Justin didn’t bash her. Because Britney still has a lot of goodwill towards her, while Lohan, it is almost universally agreed, doesn’t deserve our sympathy!

[Sidenote: Some friends of mine in the industry used to be pretty close to LiLo and say they tried to help when things started going bad for her a few years ago. But when all she did was hit them up for money, they finally gave up and realised [in their words] “she didn’t want to be helped, she just wanted to party”.]

Justin Bieber: Topless and tweeting, he must be on the mend

I wouldn’t blame Justin if he didn’t want to return to London for some time, this latest trip has been such a PR nightmare for him. First there was the “worst birthday” when his planned £10,000 bash ended before it really began after his 14-year-old friend Jaden Smith was [rightly!] turned away from the over 18s Cirque du Soir club in Soho where it was being held.

Then he was almost two hours [although he claims 40 minutes] late for his first concert at the O2 on Monday. If we are to believe Justin it was due to “technical issues” but The Sun newspaper claims he was playing video games and woke up late.

And to top it all off he collapsed at his concert on Thursday, had to go off stage for 10-20 minutes to be seen by doctors, managed to return to finish the gig and was then rushed to hospital.

Another disaster or as some cynics are suggesting, a genius PR move designed to win sympathy?

Check out Justin’s manager Scooter Braun explaining the situation to the fans and decide for yourself.

 

Either way, the 19-year-old singer was well enough to post a topless picture of himself in his hospital bed to Instagram for his fans to swoon over so he seems to be doing better!

He also tweeted: “Getting better. thanks for everyone pulling me thru tonight. best fans in the world. figuring out what happened. thanks for the love.”
